Synopsis
Under the direction of Torquemada (Golden Globe® nominee Lance Henriksen) the Grand Inquisitor of Spain, a young baker's wife, Maria, is falsely accused of witchcraft and dragged before the Inquisition. Torquemada is enchanted by Maria's beauty and subjects her and her husband Antonio to heinous torture hoping to prove that his own desires are a result of her bewitching powers. With the help of Esmerelda, Maria's cellmate and a confessed witch, Maria must save her husband Antonio from Torquemada's ultimate machine of torture—the razor sharp pendulum poised over the inescapable pit of hell.
